Noah Beery is a First Mate on a ship who tries to sink it to share in the insurance payoff.

Hoisted on his own petard.
We knew Noah Beery, Jr. played nice guys, and Wallace Beery played lovable, flawed rogues. Meet Noah Beery (Senior): he plays the kind of guy you'll never want to work for, especially on a ship, which he's planning to deep six for the insurance.
The crew of the ship are as unappealing as the stunted dialogue, but the women are a treat to behold.
Sudden ending, with neat "effect." No special effects here - it looked like the real thing.
